Young Achiever Award

9th July 2018

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP was delighted to award Minchinhampton constituent, Melissa Ida Petty, a prestigious Young Achiever Award in the Houses of Parliament.

The award, sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation, is designed to recognise young people who have positively impacted the lives of others around them and beyond.

Ms Petty has been active in fundraising and volunteering since a young age and has most recently been raising money to build a new classroom for a school in Kenya for children with disabilities. Furthermore, she has been instrumental in increasing awareness to stop the ivory trade in Africa.

Commenting on the award, Sir Geoffrey said:

“It is fantastic to recognise Melissa’s excellent achievements and I am proud to have been invited to present this Young Achiever Award from the Universal Peace Federation.

“From my 26 years as the Member of Parliament, I know from experience just how many people in the Cotswolds are involved in charitable activities and I am delighted to see Melissa’s work being properly recognised.”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.


Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
